UF and AAWE wind Engineering graduate student..... Where are you now? #Harvey
The UF wind engineering program is proud to be part of the NSF NHERI Network. We host one of the seven experimental facilities, which is available to hazard researchers across the country.
The 2017 Atlantic #hurricane season begins today. National forecasters say an above normal season is the most likely, with 11-17 named storms and up to four maj...or hurricanes. Watch why the #NSFfunded University of Florida Terraformer wind tunnel is so unique and drawing hazards researchers from all over the country.
Happy Holidays! My research group has prepared a preliminary damage survey, from online sources, on the Christmas 2015 tornadoes that affected communities in more than five states over the Christmas season. I wish to express gratitude to my graduate students who worked feverishly throughout the holidays to research the damage, under our usual time constraints, even as the second tornado outbreak was gaining strength. Our efforts in a small way acknowledges the hardships that many families in the affected communities will now face, as they rebuild their lives following damaged homes, injuries and fatalities. We are hopeful that we can play our part in improving how future houses are built, and that our efforts will pave the way to tornado-resilient communities.
Best wishes for a Joyful and Fulfilling 2016!
